2nd Year Linguistics Student providing online tutoring in Mathematics and revision/applications tips

Methodology

Hi, here's how we'll get you the top grades!
Firstly, I'm a second year Linguistics student at The University of Edinburgh on track for a 2:1 or possibly a 1st in my undergraduate MA (Hons) degree. As a tutor I like to explain things clearly, going through problems step by step with the student and explaining my reasons for my choices. For example, why I would expand a bracket the way that I have. I believe that in order to be able to do something like preform well in a test, you need to understand why you're doing what you're doing and how the process works, so that you can apply it to any situation, my tutoring will help you do that!


Experience

A bit about me:

I tutored consistently for 2 years in Mathematics throughout my A-level years at sixth form and currently volunteer as a proof-reader for my university's peer-proofreading scheme, reading academic documents from students ranging from 1st year to international post-grads.

Gabby's CV

My degree:

Linguistics may seem like a strange choice of subject but I love language and learning about how we ourselves learn to speak and understand our own native language and other languages which are foreign to us. Subjects I study as part of my degree range from looking at bilingualism to language pathology (speech impediments or learning disabilities) with a primary focus on English language and it's history.

Whilst at university I've also studied the following modules to incorporate my love of Maths and fascination with the Law:

Foundation Spanish 2 - CEFR Level A2+
Mathematics for Social Sciences - Statistics at a university level
Introduction to Criminal Justice
Introduction to Criminology

I also have 3 A-levels:

Biology: A
Mathematics: B
Psychology: B

I also have 10 GCSE's (taken under the old modular curriculum (2011), however having seen the recent syllabus the material is very similar if not identical):

Mathematics: A
English Literature: A
English Language: B
Biology: A
Chemistry: A
Physics: A
Art and Design: A
ICT: B
Geography: A
Spanish: A
